When faced with increasing competition, shorter production-to-market deadlines and lower margins, you need to remove cost from your business, right at the process level. BEC’s eSmart SFDC (Shop Floor Data Capture) solution collects data directly from production line assets, giving manufacturers real-time control over data and individual job costings.
By using wireless data capture terminals to streamline routine data entry processes, eSmart SFDC eliminates the errors that crop up when data capture isn’t automated and it removes the admin costs of inputting data and correcting. eSmart SFDC also reduces the time taken to process data and makes information accessible across your organisation in real-time.
Highly customisable eSmart SFDC can be tailored to suit each manufacturer’s unique production processes, providing your business with the right tools to get accurate, usable data directly from the shop floor. Management will benefit from full visibility of shop floor applications and can monitor the performance of key operations and personnel, plus improve quality control. By making improvements to accuracy, efficiency and traceability using eSmart SFDC, your business can become more agile and able to respond quickly to new opportunities.
By supporting the full range of WIP activities, eSmart SFDC delivers increased stock handling efficiency. The software is set to automatically trigger the issue of raw materials to production and correctly allocates the right amount of storage for WIP and finished goods. All transaction data is instantly verified against production schedules, reducing wastage and providing real-time progress tracking and precise job costings.
eSmart SFDC enables you to accurately monitor production line statistics. Need to know more about operator productivity? eSmart SFDC accurately tracks the time individual operators spend on a job, right from the moment they first log on to production line terminals. There is even an option to locate staff in real-time. With full support of time and attendance requirements, eSmart SFDC can be fully integrated with payroll systems, helping you to reduce the time spent managing rosters, absences and staff scheduling.
eSmart SFDC optimises the use of automated plant data and preventative maintenance schedules. Captured data can be used to analyse key performance indicators (KPI) at the transaction level, resulting in improved planning and resource utilisation. Using historical records as comparisons for your KPIs, you can effectively manage labour hours, monitor unproductive down-time and identify trends in productivity – all in real-time. Should KPIs fall below expectations, eSmart SFDC will also issue automatic alerts to managers.
